Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the Hyundai Kona. The Jeep Wrangler will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Kona.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Wrangler as you will with the Hyundai Kona, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Jeep Wrangler is somewhat more expensive than the Hyundai Kona. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler is much higher than that for the Hyundai Kona.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Wrangler is much wider than the Hyundai Kona, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Wrangler takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Kona.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Wrangler does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Hyundai Kona.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler has the same turning radius as the Hyundai Kona, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Wrangler greatly out-muscles the Hyundai Kona.

Utility
The Jeep Wrangler has less seating than the Hyundai Kona, making the Hyundai Kona the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Wrangler has significantly less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Kona.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Wrangler is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Kona.
